But where do you draw the line?

If a programmer has never written their own compiler, how good a programmer can they be?

If a programmer has never written in assembly, how good a programmer can they be?

If a programmer has never designed their own CPU, how good a programmer can they be?

And with any of these things, not having done them doesn't imply that they couldn't do them, just that they haven't needed to. And it certainly doesn't mean that they couldn't be extremely good in other areas.
